Pinhole Movie Reviews


The Rating System

How do you rate a movie? Why do we rate movies? It seems like more and more movie reviews function like essays that argue the specific merits and failings of a movie. Movie reviews like these can stimulate a reader who already has seen the movie, but what about the person who just wants a recommendation? This site is an attempt to provide that service. And in that sense, I think it is appropriate that this blog started as a way for three, avid movie viewing friends to recommend movies to one another.

Is a movie good or bad? That’s for you to debate. Is a movie worth checking out? That’s someone we can help you with.

Rating System:

Required Viewing:

These are movies that are just so good they have to be viewed immediately. A reason you might watch a Required Viewing movie is because, well you can be sure it is going to be a really great movie!

Worth Watching:

These are movies that are really good and you should check them out sooner rather than later. A reason you might watch a Worth Watching movie is because you can be pretty sure it is going to be an enjoyable movie regardless of the genre.

Worth Checking Out:

These are movies that are pretty good, but you don’t need to rush to see. A reason you might watch a Worth Checking Out movie is because you find the genre interesting and you want to see something new.

Watchable:

These are movies that should only be viewed when you absolutely need to pass time. They aren’t bad, but they aren’t going to make you lose your shit. A reason you might watch a Watchable movie is because you really like the genre and you are seriously low on movies to watch.

Barely Watchable:

These are movies that are probably not worth watching, but are not so bad that they deserve to be labeled unwatchable. A reason you might watch a Barely Watchable movie is because you are a completionist and you have to watch every movie in the genre.

Unwatchable:

These are movies that you should avoid watching. A reason you might watch an Unwatchable movie is because you don’t believe us when we say a movie is unwatchable.
